Need help decoding engine VIN?
« on: January 02, 2006, 06:24:27 PM »
I'm trying to decode and engine VIN number that has been given to me that is suppose to me numbers matching off a 68 camaro.  The engine is a small block and does appear to match the vehicle vin.  Here is what I was given.  V0824VE 18N461381

I can't seem to find the "VE" designation.  Can any of you help?

Thanks,
Kris

Kris,

Look again. It's probably an "ME" which would be the base V8 for that year, 327/210 with a Powerglide transmission.
